for america. and it needs reform. so says the u.s. president. the centerpiece of the obama reform is a $5 billion cash surge. it will be used to overhaul america's underperforming schools. the $5 billion will not flow automatically to the u.s.'s 50 states. they must compete head-to-head, and justify whatever money they get. >> this competition will not be based on politics, or ideology, or the preferences of a particular interest group. instead, it will be based a simple principle. whether a state is ready to do what works. >> question: president obama has an education reform package. does it foster competition between the states? or facilitate federal control over education? pat buchanan. >> it will do both. i mean the states will compete for the federal money expect that will give the federal government a whip hand here. but john this is a drop in the ocean. 4 to $5 billion in terms of the enormous education budget, state, local, federal we have got right now. george bush's no child left behind. i'm a bit of a cynic but test scores have been dropping since 1964 in this country. sometime

" continues. host: joining us is the former president of the canadian medical thank you very much for joining us here on c-span. guest: good morning. host: let me begin by asking how the canadian system works? guest: it is mostly publicly funded. the funding comes from income tax. everyone is covered. this is the main feature of our system. it is universal. everyone is covered. no one must pay anything to see a doctor or go to the hospital. it is a system that covers everyone, basically. host: how is it funded? guest: by the income tax. you pay the income tax. we have to understand that there are about 14 systems in canada because we have provinces, and other government structures. it is not a premium of insurance that is paid. in some provinces there is a premium, but mostly it is an income tax. host: you delivered a speech as you left your position and alluded to a couple of points. first of all, in areas of how canada can do better you wrote, waiting 15 hours in an emergency room is unacceptable. within four hours in a doctor's office to renew a prescription is electable. within six months

the choice. if you are in an emergency room situation or if they're at the hospital and they use an anesthesiologist who is out of network you didn't get to pick that doctor. so you shouldn't have to pay. you send a letter to the insurance company and it is actually one of the ways to get really good results. >> you always say use a letter. that's the best way to make your point, make your case. >> absolutely. >> let's talk a little bit about the kinds of things that state law might require that you be covered for that you may not know about. >> invitro fertilization treatments, those vary state to state. that's something that who would know that you get that coverage mandated by your state? but there's a great website called familyviewsa.org and you can go there to find out what is covered by your state because of course your insurance company isn't going to advertise the fact that you get that coverage. >> bottom line here, you may not know what you're covered for. >> that's right. >> it pays to really look around and make sure you know everything you're covered for. let's talk

. captioning sponsored by cbs good morning again. joining us now first senator john mccain. senator, i understand that when vicki kennedy began calling people to speak at the wake on friday night that you were the first republican she called. i can understand why that was because you did have a very kind of special relationship with senator kennedy. you didn't always work together. a lot of the time you were on opposite sides but somehow you managed to keep this relationship going. how did you do that? >> i think it was probably because first of all we grew to respect each other. over time then have great affection for each other. you know, in this business& first you've got to establish respect. that respect sometimes was because of face-to-face discussions. sometimes for the record on issues that we had disagreements on. but the thing about ted was that when the debate was over, then he would put his arm around you and you moved on to the next issue. he never held... not only didn't he hold a grudge. he would... that was done. now let's go on to the next battle. >> schieffer: i talke
